When I asked one of my very reliable sources to comment on the T-Mobile Nokia C7 Tiger rumor, all I got was a smiley face. Perhaps what we just discovered tonight is more helpful. The Nokia C7 recently hit the FCC and its manual directly mentions T-Mobile as the carrier not once, but twice. Take a look.
Pocketnow reports that the Nokia Nuron 2 originally planned for T-Mobile USA has been cancelled. This is the second time this week we see the word “cancelled” next to a US carrier. The first one being the Nokia X7 with AT&T. The Nuron 2 is internationally known as the Nokia C5-03, a Symbian^1 smartphone.
The Nokia N8 supports WCDMA 850/900/1700/1900/2100. This means consumers in the USA can insert their AT&T or T-mobile SIM cards and enjoy fast 3G internet speeds. To confirm this works, I tested both SIM cards for a speed test. Take a look at the results.
We’re just a few days away from the Nokia E73 Mode’s official launch on June 16th, but it looks like some T-mobile stores have them already. I’m not sure if they’re selling them yet, but we spotted several hands-on photos a few days ago and now there’s a video on Youtube which was clearly recorded from a T-mobile store .
Updated with Nokia’s response below. I updated my Nokia N900 to Maemo 1.2 and wanted to start everything from scratch. The first thing I wanted to set up was my email. To get push email on the Nokia N900, I needed to add my Gmail accounts through the Nokia Messaging option. To my surprise, it was not listed as an option after I updated.
After unlocking my iPhone and testing if a T-mobile USA SIM card worked on it, a nationwide outage occurred. For a moment, I thought it was my fault. Well, it’s back in service and T-mobile confirmed it was a backend system software error. I ran some speed tests on the Nokia N900 today to see any changes.
This is a tip for the USA readers currently under AT&T contract, but want to enjoy 3G data on the Nokia N900. Since the N900 does not support AT&T’s 3G frequency, you have to use a T-mobile SIM card. Tmo’s Flexpay Monthly plan doesn’t require a long-term contract, so you can just get one at their stores without signing your soul away for the next two years.
